Young sturgeon found again in North Sea


This video shows Atlantic sturgeons (Acipenser sturio) in the Trocadéro aquarium in Paris, France.

Translated from the ARK conservationists in the Netherlands:

Thursday, September 10th, 2015

Almost three months after having been released in the Rhine one of the marked sturgeons was captured by a shrimp trawler in the North Sea. The shrimpers have reported their catch to Sportvisserij Nederland, WWF and ARK Nature. The rare sturgeon after the catch was put back in the water alive.

Marked sturgeon

The European sea sturgeon (Acipenser sturio), 78 centimeters in size, was caught on Thursday September 3 about four o’clock off the coast of Goeree-Overflakkee, about 15 kilometers from the Haringvliet sluices. The sturgeon was equipped with a mark with contact data in case of being caught. After measuring, recording of data and taking a picture, the sturgeon was put overboard in good condition by the crew of the VLI-7 Eben Haëzer from Flushing.
